Lazing on a rainy afternoon.

Well what did you expect? A proper summer? Three straight days of sunshine? A chance of a tan? I think you'll agree that this holiday has turned out pretty much the usual fare for the UK in the summer months. As the sun beats down on the continent (raising the chances of skin cancers and drunken sex) we get this! Fucking rain and no riding days.

So to keep myself occupied, I decided to make use of my woodworking tools and new workbench. A luthiers inlay cutting jig is on the way (although I'm pretty sure I used to posses a full size saw which I can't find anymore) I'm using chisels and patience to make headway! I know I need to stop all production at a certain point in the evening, as my downstairs neighbours may complain about the workshop above their bedroom 😦

Not withstanding the obvious cock it in the measurements, I'm doing fine. The final product will be up and running to start making inlays in a couple of days :). But today I decided to let old Delia Smith out of the box and make an awesome curry, a fish and prawn curry made from a recipe I saw on the Saturday kitchen programme yesterday.
At least when it's raining I'm not spending money.
